iCloud Keychain – Store Encrypted Passwords in iCloud

by on September 17th, 2013

Remembering all the passwords for online services that you use can be a real hectic job. Storing passwords in a file stored in PC is not safe because it can be compromised. You can buy a software that can store encrypted passwords but then it will cost you some bucks. If you use Apple MAC, then they are bringing a free solution for this. iCloud Keychain remembers passwords for you. Store your website user names and passwords on the devices you’ve approved, protect these passwords with a strong 256-bit AES encryption, and keep them up to date on each device. It also automatically fills in passwords whenever and wherever you need them.

It has got a ‘Password Generator’ that suggests unique, hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts. iCloud Keychain works with credit card information too, so checking out is a snap. Instead of typing or copy pasting all the lengthy information every time you purchase something online, you just have to select the card to fill information for you. Your credit card information is saved to iCloud Keychain without card’s security code and is available whenever and wherever you need it — on all your devices.

iCloud Keychain works on all your iOS 7 devices and your Mac computers running OS X Mavericks. iCloud Keychain is coming with the new Apple OS that is OS X Mavericks and it is coming this fall.
